About Pawley Stuidos:
Husband and wife team, Amanda and Daniel Pawley, started their work together in college at Western Kentucky University. After graduation, they began the steps to create art they way thy saw fit. Pawley Studios is the current culmination of that work.
Amanda Pawley is a full time potter focusing on ceramic knitting accessories and fun yarnie mugs. Amanda has been making pots for 15 years. She took her first class in 2003, and has been working in clay ever since. After college, Amanda worked with full time potter in Florida for two years, which is where she learned more of the business side of being an artist.
Amanda’s favorite part of the process is throwing pieces on the wheel. It is very relaxing! It is extremely easy to get caught up in the process and lose track of time, very similar to knitting and crocheting. She love making functional ware, making beautiful pieces that also have a purpose.
Daniel and Amanda believe handmade crafts stimulate an emotional connection with the user. They are happiest when people enjoy using one of their pots. All of their clay and glazes are food, dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.
The Pawley’s created a production studio in the downtown square of Russellville Kentucky and have been there for about 10 years. They use this location for their wholesale business to many knitting shops across the country and to promote the arts in a local atmosphere.
Taking a look at their website you will see that they hand make everything, and they even do customer orders. One of the unique things about their process is that they live stream their creation process on Twitch.tv. This allows the customer to see the process from start to finish and you can watch your piece being made, adding one more level to the personalization.
